's a question, you know, we have heard about the talking points that apparently, former cia director general david petraeus testified, at least according to those who heard the testimony that the cia put out its own talking points and it was different from what was carried out by susan rice. so somewhere in the interim tsounds like there were two versions what have the cia prepared and what ended up in her hands. how do we get to the bottom of who changed them? be the big mystery that no one seems to be able to answer. somebody put their hands on the report and edited it. who was it? >> no one's admitting to that. i am not sure we are ready for a select committee. but a standing committee like homeland security, armed services need to get to the bottom of that. general petraeus is just the beginning. he showed -- he showed us that he knew it was a terroristac starks, from day 1. susan rice should have known that. and it's troubling that she did not know that. i don't know if she's not listening to her intelligence briefings, or if she doesn't do her homework, but it's troubling that she didn
, not from the dni. second of all, it was obvious within 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said that this was a terrorist attack. and she continued to tell the world through all the talk shows, that it was a, quote, spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that's not competence in my view. and the president is the one who is ultimately responsible. that is not an acceptable person, inmy view, to be secretary of state. >> president obama says it is important to find out exactly what happened there but it's outrageous for senator mccain or other republicans to go after miss rice, that it's the president who's responsible, that he should be the one if they want to point fingers or go after anyone. zoraida? >> dan lothian live in washington for us. thank you. >> okay. >>> new developments this morning in "the apprentice" sex scandal leading back to square one. we know the identity of the fbi agent who helped start the investigation that eventually led to the former cia director's resignation. his name is frederick humphries ii, 47 years old and a veteran investigator. also
cia director has some serious problems as well. president obama pulls out all the stops to keep middle class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us now from capitol hill with the very latest. what happened today, dana? >> reporter: wolf, it was one thing for susan rice to be criticize

the department of state. why would the cia, why would they lie, the narrative was al-qaeda was on its heels and when the narrative is al-qaeda is at the front door and about to kill four americans. of course they knew and scrubbed out that information so susan rice either didn't have it or didn't use it when she went on the television talk shows on sunday. >> dave: the thing i can't figure out, david petraeus on friday said that again, i knew from the start, we knew from the start it was terrorism. why in those talking points was there ever any mention of a youtube video and a spontaneous protest, if the intelligence community knew what it was, why was that ever a part of the talking points, another question we likely will not get an answer to, don't hold your breath. >> clayton: as peter king talked about yesterday, the bureaucratic way of questioning them. >> dave: getting susan rice. >> clayton: protocol, to get the answers and she may not know anyway. >> at one point in the weekly standard it says, the president says we're after an election now i think it's important for us to find out
of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the r
suggesting it was sparked by a spontaneous protest accompanied by acting cia director michael morell, rice explained she was using unclassified talking points which were stripped of references to al qaeda, still classified by the intelligence community. so rice used the word extremist. >> extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> reporter: a source inside the meeting tells cnn rice admitted to gop senators she was aware of classified information suggesting al qaeda was behind the attack, and yet gop senators point out she still said this publicly. >> we have decimated al qaeda. >> reporter: cnn also was told rice tried to clarify to gop senators what she meant was al qaeda's poor leadership has been decimated but gop senators say it is proof rice was putting pre-election spin before national security. >> it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> reporter: ambassador rice, what do you say to republicans who say your comments were politically motivated? rice didn't answer our questio
suggesting the national intelligence director, the head of the cia, they were concocting a politically attuned story, if you will, for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n.? >> i don't know who was responsible for it. that is the thing that we are going to discover. >> they said they did it. they said it wasn't a white house decision. >> it would not be unheard up in the annals of the united states to write something to protect themselves from embarrassment. >> i want you to react to some of the assertions, the accusations that have been leveled at senator mccain, senator graham, that there's an element of sexism and even racism inner that opposition to susan rice. do you believe that? >> i know senator mccain. and i don't think he would go that low. susan rice, as i mentioned, is very qualified to hold this position if the president -- again, i don't want to prejudge what the president may or may not do with regards to susan rice. i think she has served with honor and distinction. and i'm not going to make this about anything other than if the president nominates her, i'm willing to stand b
